During the spring 2011 semester, the students in Santa Monica College's Communications 2 (media literacy) course published the second issue of the Student Journal for Media Literacy Education. Under the supervision of Professor Nick Pernisco, the students wrote articles on the agreed upon theme of "Apps, and the Rise of Mobile Media". The students worked mostly in pairs on a selected topic within the theme, and they conducted their own research and analysis to produce their work. Although Professor Pernisco provided guidance, the students had the final say on the articles, the publication's layout and logo, and even on the press release for the Journal.
